Loss of Steve Jobs Still Felt, in Culture and in Cupertino

Loss of Steve Jobs Still Felt, in Culture and in Cupertino

"It's in Apple's DNA that technology alone is not enough. It's technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the results that make our hearts sing," Steve Jobs once said. Jobs, co-founder and CEO of Apple and a visionary who changed the world, died a year ago on October 5, 2011.

If you visited Apple.com Friday, you were greeted with a montage of Steve Jobs images accompanied by soundbites from the company's visionary co-founder and longtime CEO.

"It's an iPod, a phone and an Internet communicator," says Jobs, holding up the first-generation iPhone in 2007. The 105-minute video also includes audio of him using it to make a prank phone call. "I'd like 4,000 lattes to go, please."

'Our Values Originated with Steve'

In another golden nugget from the man who arguably spearheaded the mobile device revolution and launched Apple's trajectory toward the single-highest private capitalization in the world, Jobs said: "It's in Apple's DNA that technology alone is not enough. It's technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the results that make our hearts sing."

It was perhaps the most moving and fitting of tributes to Jobs on the first anniversary of his death. Jobs was born on Feb. 24, 1955.

"Our values originated with Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple," wrote Jobs' successor, Apple CEO Tim Cook, in a message.

His absence was widely felt across the country in the past year as commentators and analysts assessed the progress of Apple in his wake. At the Emmy Awards ceremony Sept. 23, Jobs was included in a montage of entertainment figures who died during the past year because of his work launching Pixar, the innovative animation studio responsible for Toy Story, Cars, Finding Nemo and other films.

And on Friday, his name was a top-trending topic on Twitter. Tech Web sites and columnists posted tributes rehashing his impact. A group of fundraisers, dubbing themselves iCancer, started a Twitter campaign to raise $3.2 million to get companies to test a possible cancer treatment from Sweden. (Jobs died of pancreatic cancer.) On the online donor site Indiegogo, however, only $27,328 had been raised toward a $1 million goal.

Jobs will continue to be an almost mythical figure inspiring the imagination of current and future innovators and inventors, as well as a pop culture figure. In addition to the best-selling authorized biography "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson, St. Martin's Press expects to publish a memoir next year by Jobs' high school girlfriend, Chrisann Brennan, with whom he had a daughter.

The anniversary follows the successful launch of new versions of the iPhone and iPad tablet in the past year. Jobs was intimately involved in the development of those devices and reportedly micromanaged the design teams until the finished product met his tough standards. (continued...)

Wow, people need to get over it. And I also agree with Richard Bentley, he was single handedly trying to destroy competition. I owned an iPhone 3GS, but now have a Samsung Galaxy S2, and I will NEVER EVER buy an Apple product again.
